BRASELTON, Georgia (September 30, 2015)- Continuing his efforts to drive in a variety of machinery around the country, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong will once again take the wheel in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America as a supporting event to this weekend’s Petit Le Mans at the famed Road Atlanta. Returning to O’Gara Motorsport in the No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, the 26-year old is in search of continued podium results.
“Anytime you can be part of an event like this you can’t help but be thankful,” stated Brian Wong. “Road Atlanta is one of the most unique and impressive tracks in the country, and there is simply no better weekend to be here than during Petit Le Mans. I have some great memories here over the years, and really hoping to add to that this week. The team at O’Gara Motorsport has done a great job getting the car ready, and my teammate Tom continues to progress during every weekend. There is some stiff competition here so you never know what can happen, but we’re definitely looking forward to it.”
AUSTIN, Texas (September 21)- Returning to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America after a whirlwind month in which he’s competed in both NASCAR and Red Bull Global Rallycross competition, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong would re-team with O’Gara Motorsport for the latest rounds at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Driving with team owner Tom O’Gara in the No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, the duo would take fifth and sixth in class during the week’s double-header.
“Certainly we would have liked to have seen the podium, but we had clean series of races which is a positive,” stated Wong. “Tom did a great job as always, and he drove a smart race to stay clean and out of major trouble, which went a long way in our race week. Everyone on the team did a great job getting the car prepared, and we should be pleased with our race.”
As a double-header event set at the famed Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, Wong would team with O’Gara Motorsport for the fourth event in succession, driving alongside Tom O’Gara in the ProAm category. With Tom O’Gara having never driven at the circuit prior, the duo knew that running a clean race would be of key importance, with Tom doing an excellent job during both rounds.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (September 16, 2015)- With zero experience in the top-tier Supercar category of the Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) championship, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong made a strong impression during this past weekend’s doubleheader event at the Port of Los Angeles.
“There is absolutely nothing like this series in the world,” stated Wong. “I hadn’t even sat in the car before Friday’s practice, so to be as competitive as we were and fight right to the end during both days, made for a great experience. The GRC product is incredible. They’ve managed to really bring in a new audience to motorsport, and the enthusiasm we saw from everyone in the stands was unlike anything I’ve seen. The series has clearly found a great demographic and audience. Everyone at Rhys Millen Racing did an excellent job preparing me, and the car was excellent. I can’t thank all of our partners from World Stage Racing enough: Super Street Network, GT Channel, Koomus, Wags and Walks and Nitty.”
Having not turned a wheel in his No. 89 Hyundai Veloster before Friday practice, Wong did an impressive job getting up to speed during the day’s practice and qualifying sessions. Coming off of a busy summer in which he’s driven in everything from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series, the opportunity to jump in a small car designed to drive off road, over jumps, and through the tricky confines of the port of Los Angeles presented a unique challenge to the 26-year-old.
